If you have a phone with android version Kitkat, you probably must know how much problem is it for some apps to write on SD card. Google had made it a sort of rule that allows only the system apps to write on SD cards. Well, that sucks if you have a device below 16gbs of internal storage. Thanks to SDFix, the restriction is eliminated. Go ahead and save your backups
and other pieces of stuff in SD card!
Most of android users don’t know the fact that until marshmallow any app you install may access everything that lies inside your phone WITHOUT your permission. Is Google cheating you? No, they display what apps can access once you install an app but hardly anyone notices! (From Marshmallow update, whenever an app tries to access a particular function –e.g. storage or Location, the app must take user’s permission). Xprivacy is to your rescue! Install the apps and see what all features can apps use and if you find thing malicious – example gallery app requiring access to NFC – you can terminate the access to the feature to the app.
Flashify is for those who frequently flash apps. Traditionally, flashing anything would require a PC or going to recovery mode but flashily aims to eradicate this procedure by providing an extremely simple way to flash.
Just open the app, choose the file you would like to flash and you are good to go. Not only this, you can even backup and restore your recovery image right from the app.
There are tons of app which keep running in the background and to keep a track of them traditionally, you would require a PC and would have to undergo some command line in adb. This app generates log file for your device which will contain list of background apps, battery hungry apps and much more. A word of advice: Not everyone can read a log file, you will have to understand some terms and spend time with the app to know more.
In some situations, you would want to change your IMEI and other system level basic information like Android ID (There is a myth that using these types of apps will actually change your phone’s IMEI number. Remember: the app will only change what an app reads from your phone as IMEI number). This app
will let you change these information as per your requirements.
